On this week’s Masters in Business radio podcast, we speak with Michael Covel, author of "Trend Following" and "The Complete Turtle Trader." Covel is a student of trading, and has helped demystify a number of fascinating aspects of how top traders achieve outstanding performance returns.

Most fascinating is his discussion of Richard Dennis and the Turtle Traders, first brought to public attention in Jack Schwager’s book "Market Wizards." Covel wrote the definitive story of the group's creation. It's wonderful stuff.
